These are some of the most popular purple succulents available.

Aeonium ‘Mardi Gras’

This Aeonium is characterized by its vibrant colors, with green and purple leaves. When exposed to lots of sunlight or cooler temperatures, the yellow and green stripes become a vivid pink and lime green.

Graptoveria ‘Debbie’

Debbie is an Echeveria variety that has a distinctively rose-shaped rosette with bluish-purple leaves that turn pink when exposed to harsh conditions. It is an excellent choice for planting in outdoor planters.

Echeveria ‘Perle von Nurnberg’

This Echeveria is one of the most visually stunning succulents. Its purple hue is accented with golden or yellow hues around the edges, making it easy to spot in any garden. It’s a great choice for novice gardeners as it’s low-maintenance and grows well in outdoor containers.

Aeonium arboreum ‘Zwartkop’

This succulent has a striking appearance, with its deep red and green coloring that darkens to almost black when exposed to full sunlight. It grows in an outwardly branching pattern, creating a bushier shape if planted outside. Its bold hue provides a dramatic contrast to the lighter shades of other succulents, making it a great choice for decorating arrangements.

Echeveria ‘Neon Breakers’

This attractive hybrid succulent has a lovely purple rosette with pink, frilly edges. It stays green all year round, but its colors really stand out when it is exposed to plenty of sunlight. You can expect to see pretty pink flowers in the springtime.

Sempervivum ‘Neptune’

This highly versatile succulent is a great addition to any four-season garden. Its rosettes change color through the year, from yellow-green to pink to purple. It is a cold-hardy plant that is also deer resistant, and even though it is monocarpic and dies after flowering, it produces plenty of offsets beforehand.

I wish this had provided you with inspiration to come up with amazing designs using purple succulents!
